It seems to me like this is all trying to fix a non-problem. If a user has
chosen to have their browser highlight certain fields in a form
(overriding the author's wishes), that's their business, isn't it? If I
had chosen to do such a thing, I wouldn't want a website forcing it to do
something different. If this is about aesthetics, the user will obviously
know that the yellow was not put there by the author, but by their
googlebar, and won't think anything of it.

Maybe I'm out it left field, but it seems like trying to "fix" this
feature is going a little too far.
